Norway

NorwayThe climate of Norway is much more temperate than expected for such high latitudes; this is mainly due to the North Atlantic Current with its extension, the Norwegian Current, raising the air temperature,[4] and the prevailing southwesterlies bringing the mild air on shore, as well as the general southwest – northeast orientation of the coast allowing the westerlies to penetrate into the Arctic. The January average in Brønnøysund  is almost 15 °C (27 °F) warmer than the January average in Nome, Alaska, even though both towns are situated on the west coast of the continents at 65°N. In July, the difference is reduced to 3 °C (5.4 °F). January average in Yakutsk, situated inland in Siberia but slightly further south, is 42 °C (76 °F) colder than in Brønnøysund. (Source: Wikipedia)
